    I think I have a virus   

     Ok guys, so I think my computer has a virus...I remeber people talking about the trojan virus going around on this site. Yesterday my trend micro was going haywire and now its virus protection won't turn on. It says it won't open because windows cant verify the program. Now whenever I use google I'll click on a link and itll take me to some random site.
    Anybody know whats going on?

    Don't click on the link google provides. It'll redirect you. Right click on the link and copy and paste the URL. That won't redirect you.

     Thanks, I downloaded the trojan hunter demo and am running it. It says its found two trojan thingys (my tech word) and in all the writing stuff it says something about it being in trend micro so I think its attacking my trend micro security.

    I keep getting this windows alert

    This is what i would do... and it almost always works for me..

    Restart your computer and repeatedly press f8 when your pc is rebooting.
    Select Safe mode with networking.
    From there let the computer start up.
    Go online and download Malware Bytes from here.
    It's free and usually does the trick.
    Install it and run it. Quick scan usually works. From there just follow the prompts.
    :D

     So nothing will remove it, itll find it but won't quarantine it or the trojan will close and lock up the program...guess i gotta take it in

    Also it helps to rename the program file, so for example normally it's program.exe, rename to program123.exe that way the virus can't find the program and block it.
